Hunted this weekend and it was funny to hear the groups with dogs complaining about how the other groups had even more dogs.
I literally heard one guy say, "we only have 2 dogs and we saw groups running up to 5 dogs".
I just casually agreed as we marched on without ANY dogs. We registered 7 miles through brush country per the GPS within the 1st morning hunt alone.
A retriever sure would have been nice with all the thick grass though.
Ask on this forum and you can find someone with a dog, and maybe even a ride.
